This Slow Cooker Apricot Pork Roast is a family favorite. The recipe is from my dearest friend Regina. She always seems to come up with these simple and delectable recipes. The perfect meal to come home to after a long, busy day. Try this soon and enjoy!CrockpotApricotPorkRoast


Crockpot recipes usually allow the meat to cook 8 hours on low which is perfect for my daily schedule.  I have discovered for those that cook for a shorter amount of time I can use frozen meat to extend the time.  I did just that with this recipe and it came out perfect!  Most of it fell apart because it was so tender, which is just how I like it.

    Cover and cook on low for 10 hours. Check for tenderness. When finished, take out and let rest on cutting board. Internal temperature should be 145 to 165. I like it at 165.

    Taste the sauce. If it needs a dash of salt and pepper, add now. Thicken sauce by mixing the cornstarch and water then pour into slow cooker. Mix into sauce. Turn on high and let simmer 10 minutes to thicken. Stir a few times.

    Slice the pork roast and place on serving plate. Pour sauce over top. That’s it, enjoy!
